Abstract

Alveolar soft part sarcoma is an uncommon soft tissue tumor that has seldom been studied by cytologic methods. The cytomorphologic features of two cases of this sarcoma are described. To enhance diagnostic accuracy in a suspected alveolar soft part sarcoma, the authors present the differential diagnosis and the application of immunocytochemical procedures to cytologic specimens.
